President Donald J. Trump Approves District of Columbia Emergency Declaration

Issued on: January 11, 2021

Today, President Donald J. Trump declared that an emergency exists in the District of Columbia and ordered Federal assistance to supplement the Districtís response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from the 59th Presidential Inauguration from January 11 to January 24, 2021.

The Presidentís action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the District of Columbia.

Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 100 percent Federal funding.

Pete Gaynor, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security, named Thomas J. Fargione as the Federal Coordinating Officer for Federal recovery operations in the affected area.

2. Question: Would this have anything

to do with the rumor that is going around on Twitter that trump is going to declare Martial Law the next time he is televised? Just wondering if the two are related in any way.

Could this be a set up of some kind?

Just askin

Thanks

3. Rumors on Twitter and $4 are enough for a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Of course, if you had asked me last Wednesday morning what were the odds that Trump would inpsire his subjects to force their way into the U.S. Capitol, I would have laughed at that notion too.

6. Didn't think the Capitol Police did "that shit" either

There are many huge anti-American/pro trump groups like the "Oath Keepers"; The Proud Boys; The Groyper Army; The Boogaloo Bois; The Last Sons of Liberty; DC Under Siege. etc; who appear to have a lot of ex-military in their ranks.

So, I'm a bit cynical when the US Military assures us that they don't "do that shit". I want to believe them, because I believe in the honor & patriotism of our troops.. but now, well, I just don't know any more.

Personally, because I definitely underestimated #TraitorTrump, much of this treasonous insurrection caught me off guard - in fact I am still in shock and I guess I am now just expecting the worst - which is, no doubt, one of their 'loftier' goals.

P.S. This just in: (CNN)A US Secret Service officer is under investigation after accusing lawmakers of treason and sharing conspiracy theories about the election on social media, according to The Washington Post who obtained images of the comments.
